Descendants of the fourth son of Chanaan, son of Cham (Genesis 10), an ancient and warlike people of doubtful origin, inhabitants of the land of Chanaan before the advent of Israel. They first appear in the Bible as inhabitants of South Palestine (Genesis 14), where a war with the Israelites (Joshua 10) secured to the latter the tenure of Palestine. While the origin of this race is disputed, its language, religion, and institutions are Semitic.
